Elizabeth, W.Va. - The West Virginia Small Business Development Center (WVSBDC) is introducing a new training and business coaching program to help entrepreneurs and small business owners receive the right information at the right time.|
The new program, Three Step Jump Start, helps entrepreneurs and small business owners in West Virginia accelerate their potential success by learning the structure and services provided by WVSBDC. This first step is accomplished by viewing a video located on the agency's web site www.wvsbdc.org
Each individual then receives essential information for starting, planning or refreshing a business by attending a WVSBDC workshop being held on Thursday, April 19, 2012 from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the Wirt County Library located on Mulberry St. in Elizabeth, WV. (next to Wirt County High School).
The Fundamentals Workshop is specifically designed for those who are thinking of starting a business, or have had a business for one year or less. The workshop provides essential information for what an entrepreneur needs to know to successfully start a business. There is a $35.00 per person fee per workshop.
Upon completion of the workshop, an individual may choose to schedule an appointment with WVSBDC for one-on-one coaching sessions. An individual might also decide, as a result of what has been learned, to delay starting a business or perhaps come to the conclusion that it is not the right career choice.
WVSBDC coaching sessions can assist with important services like business plan development, financial statement preparation and cash flow analysis, among many other small business needs.
To register for the local workshop, please contact Greg Hill via phone at (304)424-8391 or email at Greg.A.Hill@wv.gov
